Micromax has launched a new series of smartphones in India enhancing the video capabilities as well as keeping the prices at par below Rs. 5000. The new Vdeo series of smartphones – Vdeo 1 and Vdeo 2, priced at Rs. 4,440 and Rs. 4,990, respectively. They come preloaded with Google Duo video calling app.
The new series will challenge and take on likes of Reliance LYF smartphones. Both are equipped with 4G VoLTE connectivity and are touted as the affordable smartphone in the market to have VoLTE support. With launch of Reliance Jio, there has been considerable demand for low-segment smartphones with 4G VoLTE support and Micromax has a product for them.
“At Micromax we thrive on our understanding of the Indian consumer, consistently deriving insights and delivering innovative products to the market,” said Shubhajit Sen, Chief Marketing Officer, Micromax Informatics, in a statement.

Micromax has partnered with Reliance Jio and purchase of Vdeo 1 and Vdeo 2 smartphones will get you a free Jio SIM card, which is the need of the hour. Both smartphone share the same specs, while they differ in display size.
The Micromax Vdeo 1 features a 4-inch WVGA display while the Vdeo 2 sports 4.5-inch FWVGA display. Processing is done by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor accompanied with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable internal storage.

“2016 has seen a marked slowdown in the long term trend of Feature Phones users shifting to Smart Phones. Two barriers we identified were perceived high cost of data and a lack of a differentiated mass-use case. Of course, the Vdeo range is fully loaded with best-in-class features for an entry level Smartphone – including 4G VoLTE, Android Marshmallow, Quad core processors, great battery performance and housed in a premium and stylish metal body. We are extremely proud that we have managed to deliver this bundle of features in phones priced under Rs 5000,” added Mr Sen at the launch event.
